In addition to working on new songs, the band has been very busy with other projects. Here's what they've been up to:
Jim produced the excellent debut LP by Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, which came out on January 27 on Lost Highway.
Rob is doing some shows with the Get Up Kids throughout this year and he will also be looking after Jeff Byrd from time to time.
Eric has been spending time in Texas and New York working on a solo project.
Spoon contributed a song entitled "Well-Alright" to a new Red Hot compilation called Dark Was The Night, which was just released worldwide on 4AD. This album is composed of 31 exclusive tracks by different bands and is available as a double cd or a triple vinyl (or a download.) It benefits the Red Hot Organization – an international charity dedicated to raising money and awareness for HIV and AIDS. For more information, go here.
